The Three Dysfunctions of a Dental Practice (Part 2)

This is part two of my three-part series called “The Three Dysfunctions of a Dental Practice.” Before continuing with this episode, I encourage you to listen to part one, where I share why dentists are constantly looking for external solutions to their internal problems and how to fix this. Today I will be discussing the false belief many dentists have that their number one job is being a good clinician when it is actually being a good leader.

Listen in as I explain three activators that drive mastery within your practice: goodwill, case acceptance, and team building. You will learn the importance of building trust and rapport with your clients, how to create a “surprise and delight” aspect of your service, and how to ensure you have the right members on your team. If you are looking to grow your business and create long-lasting clients, this is the episode for you.

The Three Dysfunctions of a Dental Practice (Part 1)

Today I’m kicking off a new 3-part series called “The Three Dysfunctions of a Dental Practice.” These dysfunctions are alive and well in most dental practices, and they’re usually hidden in plain sight. So in this first episode of the series, I’ll be discussing how dentists are constantly looking for external solutions to their internal problems—and what to do about it.

This section is specific to identity, so I’ll explain how the organization takes on the personality of its leader, as well as how we need to be working on our own personal mastery in order to level up our practices. If you struggle with delegation or feel like your team is too busy to take on more, you need to hear this because it is essential not only for your ability to grow, but also for your practice’s ability to grow.

Key Quotes:

  • “If we embrace these internal problems, the possibility is that we acknowledge that we are the bottleneck of the practice, and we can find ways to unlock its true potential and establish a more confident identity.”
  • “If we don’t expand the capabilities and the identity of the leader, we work really hard for limited gain.”
  • “Our energy is a role model for the whole team. We can’t expect our team members to be more passionate about the practice than we are.”
  • “If it brings you energy, you need to double down on it.”
  • “We have a leadership vacuum in our world, and what needs to fill this vacuum is high-integrity, courageous leaders.”
  • “Full expression seems like an act of selfishness, but ultimately, it becomes an act of selflessness.”
  • “We have this inner voice as dentists that says, ‘If it’s going to be done right, it’s gotta be done by us.’ But there’s an art to delegation.”
  • “A barrier to delegation is feeling like the team already has too much work and you don’t want to put more on their plate. That’s a bit of a farce.”

Post-Dental Prohibition

Post-Dental Prohibition - Relentless Dentist PodcastAs we continue through this pandemic, it is hard to find stable information that is not backed by an agenda. Unfortunately, this has truly exposed the leadership vacuum we have. So in this episode, I want to make sure we are headed in the right direction long term—and that we are not just reacting to the onslaught of demand that came through after it was legalized to go back to work.

Listen in as I share what I believe the future may hold for dentistry, as well as the actions we need to take to ensure our team, patients, and practices remain sound regardless of the restrictions that are imposed. Now is the time to develop systems that boost your reputation and promote trust in the community because if fear is the real pandemic, then trust is the only antidote.

Key Quotes:

  • “The thing with governments is once they use a strategy, they’re more than likely to use that strategy again.”
  • “The more I try to understand about the pandemic and virology, the more confused I get.”
  • “My encouragement to dentists is to help fill that leadership vacuum.”
  • “Stay focused on innovation.”
  • “If fear is the real epidemic, or pandemic now, the antidote will be trust.”
  • “We have to hope for the best and prepare for the worst.”
